Olympia/Zeus Park Neighborhood
Olympia (Zeus Park)
Imagine a movie set in a tropical environment, and you have Olympia, aka Zeus Park. The charming Olympia neighborhood was born out of an idea to create a beautiful, lush tropical backdrop for the movie industry in the 1920s.
Olympia is comprised of some of the oldest and historically designated homes in Hobe Sound, dating back to the mid-1920s. You will find that Zeus Park has that “Old Florida” charm.
Zeus Park is also a true community, where you can bring your dogs to the park every evening for “yappy hour” and converse with your neighbors.
Olympia or Zeus Park is designed with a large circular green space as the focal point of the community. There you will find your neighbors walking their dog, residents riding bikes and everyone just enjoying a day in the Florida sunshine.
Take a stroll or ride your bike downtown for coffee or maybe a light bite. Olympia is within walking distance to downtown Hobe Sound, which is ideal for local conveniences as well as taking part in community events.
This community consists of approximately 336 parcels, most have homes, and there are still some vacant lots available, but they typically sell very, VERY quickly!
Zeus Park is a wide variety of home designs from “Old Florida” ranches, to charming Key West style homes of new construction. Residents display a pride of ownership, and have well-maintained yards.
Home sizes range from bungalow styles of 800 square feet to larger homes between 5000-6000 square feet.
Some of the older homes have deeded access to a private boat ramp on the Indian River.
Although Olympia is in proximity to the water, it is “high and dry”, and is not in a flood zone.
Homes listed for sale in the Olympia neighborhood do not stay on the market long, so when you find a home that you love, it best to not wait. Not only do homes in Olympia sell quickly there is minimal turnover.
Zeus/Olympia Park is one of the hottest markets in Hobe Sound! If you’d like to work with a local realtor who has in-depth knowledge, please contact me.
